Jailbreak Toys presented ART + ACTION = OBAMA 08, a historic exhibition of one-of-a-kind Obama Action Figures on October 17th at The Showroom NYC.

HI Andrew,
I haven't had the time to make a template for this one yet. On these one offs I only take it as far as I need to, to build it once, but their is a lot of work left to get it to the point i can release it. Also I had to print on 12x18 so if I release it ti will have to be smaller. Others have expressed intrest in this template too, I'm super busy with new things at the moment but when i get a few moments this one is on my list.
